about 46 or 47 officers. this is a small community about an hour and a half outside of new york city. >> as david said, hard to explain to our kids. hard to explain to ourselves. what in the world has happened here? all these kids killed by a lone gunman in an elementary school just before christmas? i mean, it's just impossible to understand. >> here are some of the initial police transmission tapes when the calls came in. >> indicated she thinks there's someone shooting in the building. >> the individual that i have on the phone is continuing to hear what he believes to be gunfire. responding at this time. the shooting appears to have stopped. the school is in lockdown. >> roger. >> there are reports that two shooters were seen running past the gym, which would be the rear -- shooting. >> you are requested to stage at methodist church. i will need two ambulances at this time. >> now, this is the newtown police, the police chief and commander there is chief michael keho. they have a total of 47 sworn officers in uniform. i'm here with susan paige and draifd gregory, and we're waitin
that's about 60 miles northeast of new york city. the police say at least 26 people were killed, 18 of them were children. the gunman is identified as ryan lanza. he is dead. we don't know yet how he died. the police say he died in the school. he was in his early 20s, perhaps 24 years old, originally from the newtown area. lanza's mother was a teacher at this elementary school and most of the shootings occured in her classroom. she and some of her students were killed. also, a body was found in a home connected to lanza and the motive for these shootings is not known at this hour. i want to go now to john miller as we are still grappling with this terrible tragedy which i think melissa mackriss, a mother put it so well. this is a parents' worst nightmare. certainly parents of those school children who heard this news rushed to the school, many of them reunited with their children but some parents learned the very sad news that their children had been killed and have been with the governor of connecticut and others who are speaking with them. i know you've been speaking with your law
, in connecticut is about 60 miles from new york city. it's a town of less than 30,000 people. so small community and a small elementary school at that we're trying to work on details what actually transpired this morning but according to the latest, we have unconfirmed report from the local paper, the courrant, there are two shooters being reported. one shooter is dead according to this report. another one is still on the loose. again very spotty reporting at this time. we're working very hard to get someone on the scene there. you're looking at a satellite shot of this elementary school. again a very developing scene there shortly after 9:40 this morning according to the local newspaper. police reported a shooter was in the main office of the school. a person in one room according to police and according to this local report had numerous gunshot wound. working to confirm this. we have a someone from sanford, connecticut. veto, how do we find answers to the questions? >> you have a lot going on here, one of the main concerns police have you have every single parent with a child in this school tr
in new york city, the golden strip, michael eric dyson, host of nbc, melissa harris perry from the nation, and ari melbourne, columnist for the washington post and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. this is, unfortunately, something that is tha has happened a number of times this year. an ongoing national nightmare, these shootings that take place. i guess my first question is an unfolding situation. certainly we are getting more details there. there may be more bodies in the school. we don't know yet. melissa, i go to you first as a mother when you hear about this, and, you know, the ages of these children here. we're talking about an elementary school. it is a moment, obviously, for self-reflection, but also a sense that when is enough going to be enough in terms of violence in this country? >> we have to be careful because this is an unfolding event. we don't know what all the stories are, but essential as a parent -- but not just as a parent. for every one of us who sends, you know, our mom off for the day or our spouse off or our kids, you know, this idea that we live in such a con
to staff because his mother is a teacher. >> exactly. when i worked at the new york city schools after 9/11, we needed to take a very wholistic approach to this as we move forward and think of the needs of the children, this community, the teachers. this is going to be a long process of healing. there will be all kinds of great resources for people in terms of how do you talk with your children, how you move forward, how you answer their questions. certainly the school district will have to look for additional resources. joan and i were just talking about this. i hope nobody says that the school doesn't deserve whatever it is that they need to make sure there are counselors available so everyone can move forward and, you know, across this country children are going to have questions and parents are going to have to figure out how to talk with their children about what's happened. when children see something like this, they experience it very differently than we do as adults. keeping an eye on your children, if they have questions, responding to those questions but having that wholistic a
in this town, sort of the sleepy new england town, about an hour north of new york city. >> about 60 miles or so, not far away from new york city as well, much closer to danbury, connecticut. david, hold on for a moment. mary snow is in newtown as well, outside the suspect's home, what are you seeing over there, mary? >> we're being kept far back from the suspect's home. the police have cordoned off this area. there are multiple law enforcement vehicles lined up and residents, wolf, are being kept away from their homes as well and looking at a car, a line of vehicles lined up of residents who are told they cannot go to their homes because police tape has been put up. and there are more than a dozen law enforcement vehicles here. >> the suspect, mary, now deceased, died at the scene, we don't know the circumstances surrounding that, ryan lanza, in his 20s. are you getting any information at all if he had a direct connection to the sandy hook elementary school, where this mass killing took place? >> not as yet. and i have to tell you, wolf, we approached some of the residents here. they're s
. the horrifying reality at this hour reminds me of what happened in new york city after 9/11, when they lined up outside of the hospital. reporter: you could even go back to what happened at columbine. or perhaps at georgia tech. you can see at one point in time, they were alluding to a triage, which is a standing operating procedure and they set up a red tarp and a yellow tarp and other tarps and they will bring the patients out and they will assess them as the need. the red is the most serious. the yellow is not so serious, and then you move on down the line. we look at that tree are set up and there wasn't a single patient out there. at first, it seemed to be a good sign. now, as you go later on and you see going back to columbine and virginia tech, but that apparently was not a good sign. the fatalities were apparently in the office and in a certain classroom, but we though we don't know which classroom they were in. you kind of touched on how the whole town, all the schools on lockdown, there was a report earlier that police had surrounded a purple van that was in dander, which is just a fe
things in america were. l'enfant designed washington city. there was a competition and he submitted the design for a palace. americans were not having a palace. it was not particularly awe- inspiring. in fact, in 1821, a european diplomat told the congress that as neither large nor awe- inspiring. but the answer the congressman gave said the building served its purpose. if it were larger and more elegant, perhaps some president would be inclined to become its permanent resident. >> former "new york times"" photo critic vicki goldberg has gathered a few of her favorite white house photos in "the white house, the president's home in photographs in history." watch sunday evening at 7:30 eastern and pacific on c- span3's "american history tv." >> "washington journal" continues. we're glad to have back william frey from the brookings institution. and do jennifer ortman. population will be in excess of 400 million people in the u.s. what is going to change? guest: the nation is projected to grow at a slower pace over the next 38 years. the population will continue to age. that the nation
york city particularly want the move to because great school systems, lots of grass. in fact, my wife commented seeing the video how big the school was for just 600 elementary school kids. sandy hook is a small village which is part of newtown. it's a place that for when i grew up there didn't have a movie theater. it's that kind of a place. it's a very quiet bedroom community. very close-knit community. not a lot of activities. because it is so far in to a rural area. but, you know, when i heard on the radio that this happened in newtown, connecticut, i was shocked because not that it can't happen anywhere but these things don't happen in this kind of an environment. you know, my town, danbury, my hometown, they were on lockdown. there's places like new fairfield and new milford, my mother lives in oxford ten minutes from the school and imagine a state that's not accustomed to type of disaster is really up in arms over and just fear. i mean, i'm a father of two boys. and the first thing i thought of was, i can't imagine a parent going up to school, particularly in this area, finding
. some may have worked in new york city which is about 60 miles away. they're rushing here and also word that many of the law enforcement or the first responders that were at the school knew or had their own children in this school that they were also trying to cope with so this really does hit home in many ways as we always hear. but any small community or any community anywhere throughout this country can imagine the pain and can imagine the tragic feelings that are unfolding in this town at this hour. >> michelle, do we have any information on how the shooter was able to actually enter the school? >> no. we don't have any details like that so far. i would imagine that we are hearing -- we're going to get more word in the next half hour as the governor and law enforcement hold another press briefing but the initial reports is that he entered the school. he was wearing all black. two handguns. and that he made his way to the school room where his mom taught. that's what we know so far. we don't know any other details. i am certain that everything happened very quickly. we heard about a
sell it to you? i can't sell it with passion, but i will say that this is action in a city called washington or sometimes in texas we call it washington stand, where people never get anything done or don't appear to easily get things done. we do get things done. we make a decision and we proceed. >> and the fed has gotten a lot done that. was dallas federal reserve president richard fisher saying congress and the white house need to take a page from the fed on how to work and play together. the lack of action on the fiscal cliff could damage the economy in ways that the fed cannot combat. lindsey paigsa is with me and ward mccarthy of jeffries. they both join me to weigh in. lindy, what can the fed do, do you think, if congress and the white house don't make a deal and we go over the cliff? >> you know, bernanke has been very clear if the u.s. economy does go over the fiscal cliff the fed does not have the tools to offset the impact and this is something he continued to imif a size in wednesday's press conference, looking at size. impact and looking at us to temper our expectation
